Society for Amateur Scientists
The Society for Amateur Scientists helps ordinary people do extraordinary science. The mission of the Society for Amateur Scientists is to create unique collaborations between world-class professionals and citizen scientists and to remove the roadblocks that prevent ordinary people from participating in extraordinary science.
Connect with citizen scientists all over the world. Find partners, mentor others, be mentored yourself. Buy, Sell and Swap equipment. Post Wanted ads for FREE. Find out about cool events in your neighboorhood.
And don't forget to give back -- Science Fair Projects provides support for science fair students, parents and teachers. And Labrats, SAS's revolutionary new youth education program, is going to take the country by storm.
And if you'd like a local community of amateur scientist, you can start a local chapter of SAS.
Starting, or helping to start a local chapter of the Society for Amateur Scientists could be the most important thing you can do to further your interest in science.
To be successful, the organizers of the chapter must commit to putting in about ten hours between them per week. Starting a local chapter takes planning and hard work. Fortunately, the financial needs are quite modest.
